HAPPY #RIDETOWORK DAY

The 25th annual Ride To Work Day advocates and supports the use of motorcycles for transportation, and provides information about transportation riding to the public (see below). Throw a leg over your motorcycle or scooter on Monday June 20, 2016 and ride to work!

I have ridden my motorcycle to work today because:
-Riding to work is fun
-Riding to work reduces traffic and parking congestion
-Riding to work uses less fuel than an automobile
-Riding to work leaves me alert and energized
-Riding to work results in less pollution than commuting in a larger vehicle
-Riding to work is less destructive to road surfaces, bridges, etc.
-Riding to work gets me to work (and back home faster)
-Riding to work demonstrates motorcycling as a social good 

HAPPY #RIDETOWORK DAY

SISTERS' CENTENNIAL MOTORCYCLE RIDE

2016 is the 100th anniversary of Augusta and Adeline Van Buren’s courageous and unprecedented ride across the United States on motorcycles. The Sisters' Centennial Motorcycle Ride July 3-23, 2016, will honor and celebrate our female motorcycling heroines of the past, as we promote the growth of women motorcyclists and the motorcycling community.

In 1916 the Van Buren Sisters were the first women to cross the continental United States, each on her own motorcycle. They became the first women to reach the 14,115 foot summit of Pikes Peak each on her own motorcycle. In 2002 the Sisters were inducted into the American Motorcyclists Association Hall of Fame and in 2003 they were inducted into the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame.

Women, as well as men, are encouraged to come out and meet the riders along the way at community events posted on the website. Registration options now include attendance at the launch and grand finale in Brooklyn and San Francisco, as well as  a new day-rider option.
